The workshop of Angela Caputi Giuggiù, is situated near the Ponte Vecchio, in the old town of Florence, in a historical building known as “Palazzetto Mediceo”.
Here, the Florentine Artist designs her creations with inspiration from American films of the 1940’s as well as from a long-standing passion for fashion.
Angela Caputi’s worldwide recognition has increased thanks to her unique and inimitable bijoux. Her jewelry has caught the attention of both Haute Couture stylists and Museums. Her creations were displayed for example by the Metropolitan Museum of Art of New York, at Museo degli Argenti and Galleria del Costume in Florence.
Angela Caputi’s bijoux are considered both fashion and art. Her designs are recognized for their creativity and for their constant evolution. Each detail is heavily researched, from the geometrical or smooth lines, to the marvelous nuance of colours, created using “simple” materials as synthetic resins. The bijou is an expression of eternity and femininity, through modernity mixed with traditional handicraft.
From the beginning, Angela Caputi Giuggiù, has had a special relationship with the worlds of show business and Haute Couture. Her creations have adorned dresses and costumes
of many Films. She has also collaborated with some of the most well-known high-fashion costume designers.
These precious artworks quickly cornered the global market; the brand’s presence at the most important trend shows of the world, has affirmed the universal nature of Angela Caputi Giuggiù’s creations.
